Nablus (QNN)- Three Palestinian youths were assassinated on Tuesday afternoon, after being shot dead by Israeli forces’ bullets during a clandestine military operation in Al-Makhfia neighborhood in Nablus, north of the occupied West Bank.
Local sources and witnesses confirmed that the Israeli Special Forces Unit of Yamam, with over 15 soldiers, shot dead three Palestinian youths during a military operation in the Makhfia neighborhood.
The witnesses said the three youths were inside a car when the Israeli Special Forces Unit, hidden in a civilian vehicle, showered the car with over 80 bullets, and killed them on the spot, before leaving the scene in civilian vehicles (VW Caddy & VW Shattle) and making sure the three are dead.
The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the three deaths, calling the Israeli operation “an assassination,” echoing a statement from the Palestinian foreign ministry which described it as a “field execution”.
The three youths have been identified as Adham Mabrouk, Mohammed Dakheel and Ashraf Mubaslat.
Israeli media reported that the military operation was in cooperation between the Shin Bet and Israeli occupation forces, claiming they were killed as they belonged to a cell that has been responsible for a series of shootings in the area against Israeli occupation soldiers and settlers in the recent weeks.
